June 2018 Meeting is Trunking

This Thursday June 7, 2018 we will have Christopher Atkinson with his program “MARTA Communication Technologies” – A practical view of the systems that allow MARTA to communicate both above ground and below.  I will be covering technologies such as trunking, simulcast, tx/rx losses, bi-directional amplifiers, and GPS timing.

Christopher describes himself:

Lifelong super nerd.  Worked in RF for nearly 30 years covering everything from designing trunking systems to being the service manager of a 2-way radio shop.  Contracted for the US Department of Defense doing research & design for security related equipment.  Degrees in computer networking, electronics engineering and certifications in various specialties.  Can set the time on both the VCR AND the Microwave oven.

I can relate to the lifelong super nerd part!

The usual place at 7:30 pm – That’s the Atlanta Red Cross on Monroe Dr. Join some of us at the Cowtippers Restaurant on Piedmont Rd for a bite to eat before the meeting  at 6 pm.

 

See you there!
